I hope I'm doing this correctly, this is my first time here. I found you guys by 'googling' for wsem217.dll. I found where you had others submit a log from hijackthis, so here is mine. Can you help me clean up? Black Ice reported wsem217.dll (and others) as unknown or suspicious etc.

You Have A Variant of the CoolWebSearch Trojan.

Please Download CWShredder from HERE and run the Program in safe mode . Press the "Fix Button" Let it fix all variants. Next, Close the program and all windows and IE windows and run hijackthis and Post a Fresh log.

Reboot to SAFE mode to run swshredder

How to start computer in safe mode

Also I suggest Ad-Aware and Spybot

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware at ADAWARE

Download SPYBOT

Thank you so much for your quick response and help. Here is the current hijackthis log.
It appears that the cwshredder was specific to that one trojan. I'm guessing this log says I have more/other "things" yet.

Hello,

I am not sure if you have traces of other things out there (I am primarily a Mac / Linux user, and any Windows machine we come across at work get re-imaged instantly), but I do see that you have valid websites in the 127.0.0.X subnet. This means that your computer will not properly locate these resources that you are expecting.

You will need to track down the /etc/hosts file, and edit those addresses out. The only legitimate address that should be in that file is

127.0.0.1 localhost

Once you have the computer repaired, what are your plans for protection so you do not re-infect yourself? I am not sure if you read the sticky notes at the top of this forum, but there are good hints to refer to for understanding what happened, and help you plan a method of resisting future issues.

Christian

Caperjack?

Should I assume I'm clear now? Or did you just lose track of me? I do seem to have control of IE now, uses my intended "home page", no isearch, no extraneous icons/buttons etc.

Thanks so much for your help.

You still have the coolwebsearch infection. Update the shredder & run it agin. Select *fix* & not scan only. Make sure ALL other windows are closed B4 running it. Am goint to post the rest of the fix next.

Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked' :

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Internet Optimizer] "C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer\optimize.exe"
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [AddClass] C:\WINNT\AddCLS.exe

O8 - Extra context menu item: &iSearch The Web - res://C:\WINNT\system32\iSearch\toolbar_.dll/SEARCH.HTML

O9 - Extra button: iSearch Toolbar (HKLM)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: iSearch Toolbar (HKLM)

If you never added the 015 entries, fix them.

Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here & navigate to & delete

C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer< folder
C:\WINNT\AddCLS.exe< file

Reboot normally.

Download Registrar Lite from here:
http://www.resplendence.com/download/reglite.exe

Put it in its own folder. You may want to keep this program. It is an excellent free, registry editor.

Copy and paste the follow text into the address bar, then hit 'Go':
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\URLSearchHooks

In the pane on the right are the values associated with that key.
We want to remove this one>
_{1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565}

Notice the underscore at the end.

Right click on it, and select delete.
If you get a confirmation question, respond OK then close out of the program.

Please go here & install ALL critical updates required for your system.


Post a new log after a reboot please.

Thanks forthe suggestion, Crunchie. I started the shredder and clicked on the 'check for update' and it says I have the latest version. I will try running it again making very sure to select 'Fix' and not just scan only.

Yikes! I see you are a lot faster than I am. I will follow the instructions in your last post at 10:25 AM Thursday.!

latest log.

I had difficulty following some of your last instructions.
When I went to the C: drive in safe mode, I did not find the Internet optimizer folder or the WINNT\AddCls.exe.

I believe I need to keep the 015 entries. I recognize them as node names on a VPN I need to log onto.

I downloaded the Register Lite editor , but when I tried to past the HKEY_CURRENT_USERS..... into the address bar, I was taken to some kind of an MSN search page. Was not able to locat the Key you indicated to remove.

I have started running spybot and ad-aware inbetween these posts. I hope that is the right thing to do.

:cheesy: Thanks so much for the feedback, crunchie!. Per your suggestion, I have learned to run hijackthis to fix, not just scan, plus running spybot, ad-aware and using Black Ice to block intruders.

I am trainable!
